The Fox and the Hound Dog Names in Pop Culture
Copper is not special just because he is a hound and he happens to share the name of the lead character on the Disney film in question. Copper is a rescue dog. While it is unclear just how Copper made it to the facility, he was adopted from the Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Loxahatchee, Florida. He now resides with his family in Florida. Since he was adopted from the Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Copper has come to enjoy taking long walks with his new family. He also enjoys visiting the local dog park, but, most of all, he enjoys snuggling on the couch. The Big Dog Ranch is a non-profit rescue with the goal of giving a good life to as many dogs as possible. Copper the Dog is most definitely a success story of the Big Dog Ranch Rescue!
Another rather well-known dog named Copper belongs to former Bachelorette candidate, Rachel Lindsay. Lindsay introduced her special pup to Bachelor Peter on a 2017 episode. Of course, the audience nationwide became enthralled with the pup as he was not only adorable, but appeared as an injured pup as well. You see, Copper appeared on the show with his right front paw in a cast. Rachel explained during the episode that Copper broke a toe while jumping off something. Many fans tweeted their adoration for Copper on Ms. Lindsay's account. Some even suggested that Copper was a "quality man," and that he should be the recipient of the winning rose.
Another perusal of Facebook will net the find of yet another Copper the Dog. This Copper is known as "Copper the Farm Dog," and he is famous for an under bite which his owner claims is one "only a mother could love." While Copper the Farm Dog's exact breed is unknown, he has found happiness in a family with other dogs, cats, and even a few chickens.
The Fox and the Hound Dog Name Considerations
One particular dog breed that would almost deserve a name inspired by Disney's The Fox and the Hound is the American Foxhound. Ironically enough, Copper is a Coonhound. Therefore, since Tod is a fox, giving an American Foxhound a name inspired by the iconic film certainly seems appropriate.
Other notable hounds that would be suitable for a name inspired include the Bloodhound, the Plott Hound, and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. All of these dogs are considered great hunters, particularly in the American South (which is the setting of the film).
